Bradford City have beaten Leeds United 2-1 in the Capital One Cup, which will see them move through to the third round of the competition.
The defeat has thrown Leeds coach David Hockaday's position into fresh doubt.
Hull City boss Steve Bruce says signing Michael Dawson gives his defence a boost in experience.
Bruce has already pledged to rotate his squad should the Tigers overturn a 1-0 first leg deficit and reach the Europa League group stages.
Adding Dawson to his son Alex, captain Curtis Davies and James Chester gives the former Wigan and Sunderland boss options at the back:
Humberside Police say they are increasing the number of officers on duty for tomorrow's Europa League match between Hull City and KSC Lokeren.
Senior officers are responding to the trouble which flared between rival supporters after last week's first leg in Belgium which they insist was caused by a small minority of people.
James Webster reports:
Bradford City's Stephen Darby says his team are relishing another cup run and a derby scalp over rivals Leeds would be a good start.
The Bantams defender told ITV Calendar says the League One side must not be overwhelmed by the pressure of the game:
Castleford Tigers have confirmed that Daryl Clark will leave the club at the end of the 2014 Super League Season.
He has signed a four-year deal with Warrington Wolves from next season until November 2018.
Clark came through the scholarship and academy ranks at Castleford which is his home town club. He made his first-team debut in 2010, becoming a regular in the side the following year.

When I took on the head coach job last season the deal had already been done for Daryl to move to Warrington which secured the future of the club at that time. Whilst we obviously don't want to lose our best players this deal was in the best interests of the club. I have to say that Daryl has been an absolute pleasure to work with and it has been great to see him mature as a player and person this season.
– Daryl Clark
I’ve really enjoyed my time here at Castleford Tigers. This is my home town club and I will always be a Cas fan. My proudest moment has been helping this team reach the Challenge Cup Final and I’ll continue to give my all to help Castleford Tigers reach the Super League Grand Final.
Leeds United head coach Dave Hockaday says his team will give their best to get a result against Bradford in the Capital One Cup second round tonight.
He praised his West Yorkshire rivals on a good start to the season and says he knows his team will have to perform against the Bantams:
Indoor bowls has been removed from the plans for a new leisure centre in Huddersfield.
Cabinet members discussed the issue after the decision not to include bowls was referred back by scrutiny councillors.
Councillors have agreed to meet bowlers to discuss future provision for their sport.
In a statement, Kirklees Council said Council Leader Cllr David Sheard listened to bowlers, but said that the financial case did not stack up.
They say he agreed to continue to meet with bowlers alongside Cabinet colleagues to discuss where and how flat green bowling can be provided once the current sports centre is closed.
Hull boss Steve Bruce has said a potential deal to sign Blackburn striker Jordan Rhodes is "dead and buried".
It was reported last week that Bruce was keen on bringing the prolific Championship striker to the KC Stadium following the departure of Shane Long to Southampton for £12million earlier this month.
Bruce reported Blackburn were open to selling their star asset, but that they had changed their minds, with the former Wigan and Sunderland boss now conceding defeat in his pursuit of the Scotland international.
– Steve Bruce
It's dead and buried. We got an indication from Blackburn that they were willing to do a deal and that obviously changed in 24 hours. That's their prerogative. If they'd have said that to start with - that he wasn't for sale no matter what we wanted to do - then fine, we'll walk away. But unfortunately it gets a bit protracted and last weekend we thought it was close and then all of a sudden he's not for sale, so we'll move on to the next one.
Hull KR have announced the signing of former Warrington loose forward Tyrone McCarthy from Australian side Northern Pride.
The 26-year-old becomes head coach Chris Chester's sixth new signing for next season and the Rovers' man says he is delighted to have landed his target:
Dave Hockaday says he is aware of the challenge his Leeds team face against Bradford in the Capital One Cup.
